If you want to protect the info that visitors submit on your website, you will require an SSL certificate. The abbreviation stands for Secure Sockets Layer and that's a protocol used to encode any information exchanged between a website and its users as to guarantee that even if an unauthorized individual intercepts any info, they'll not be able to read or use it in any way. The current level of encryption makes it virtually impossible to decrypt the authentic content, and so if you have a login form of some kind or you offer services and goods online and clients submit credit card information, using an SSL certificate shall be a guarantee that the info is protected. Typically a dedicated IP address is required to install an SSL, which will increase the cost to maintain your site. The additional expense may matter when you manage a small online store, a non-profit organization or any other entity which does not make a big profit, so to save you the funds, our cloud website hosting platform supports installing an SSL certificate on a shared server IP address, not a dedicated one.
Shared SSL IP in Cloud Web Hosting
You'll be able to use a shared IP for an SSL certificate with each and every cloud web hosting solution we offer and no matter if the SSL is acquired through us or through a third-party vendor. If the SSL is purchased on our end, not only will you be able to select the shared IP to be set during the order, but you can also choose our auto-configuration option, so once you complete the purchase and approve the certificate, our system will set it up for you within a few seconds and you will not need to do anything personally. The one difference between employing a shared IP and a dedicated one is that your website will not appear in the event that you try to open https://the-IP-address as opposed to https://your-domain-name, but besides that, everything shall be exactly the same. With this function you could protect the data of your customers and have a secure Internet site without the added expense for a dedicated IP.
